About this Recording

ENESCU, G.: Piano Sonata No. 1 / Suite No. 2 (Varga)

This collection of piano music is a welcome reminder of the many fascinating stylistic strands that colour George Enescu’s work. Seriously under-rated today, he exerted a powerful influence on all those who came under his spell, including Yehudi Menuhin, for whom Enescu remained ‘the greatest musician’. Pianist Matei Varga is a prizewinner of numerous international competitions, among them the Maria Canals Competition in Barcelona, the Porto International Piano Competition and the George Enescu Competition in Bucharest.
